Shorgul is based on the innocent friendship between a Hindu boy Raghu ( Anirudh Dave) and a Muslim girl Zainab (Suha Gezen) rapidly escalates into a political minefield, causing unrest and chaos in Uttar Pradesh. This later turn into a national issue.


“Despite a potentially strong plot and good actors, Shorgul falls much below your expectations.”

OK for a one time watch Maybe it is not so difficult making a film based on actual happenings of the recent past and having actors made up as the real people involved. Directors Pranav Kumar Singh and Jitendra Tiwari take up a basic plot of the love story of a Muslim girl ( Suha Gezen) and a Hindu boy ( Anirudh Dave).They further add political, communal and a police dept touches to the script and you have a stereotyped narrative complete with fiery speeches,mob fury and violent clashes. Considerable footage is dedicated to Hindu Muslim riots and inciting speeches which one can corelate with actual incidents of the past and which looks contrived. The dialogue is too idealistic in many places Some good acting is seen from Ashutosh Rana and Jimmy Shergill but there are no sparks in the confrontation of the main characters when they clash.. The impact is one dimensional in most scenes.The final result is not so convincing.
